This was the next book in the Blossom Street series I have been slowly reading through. I loved this book and not just because it was a love story and involved my favorite fictional knitting shop, but because it was a book of true friendships and discovering love. I thought it was super cute that the main character of the story was working at Christmas time as a writer who would write your Christmas letter that the families would send out annually. There was the added excitement of Katherine’s sisters kids being raised the way Dr. Wynn says to raise them. This book was a cute, funny, easy and fun read. I really enjoyed this book. I would recommend that if you like Christmas and love stories to read it even though I say it is a part or a series you could totally just pick up the book and enjoy it as a stand alone.
Katherine O’Connor often spends her days at a cozy café on Blossom Street in Seattle—where she writes Christmas letters for other people. She’s good at making their everyday lives sound more interesting. More humorous. More dramatic.
But for Dr. Wynn Jeffries, who also frequents the café, Christmas means lies and deception. In fact, the renowned child psychologist recommends that parents “bury Santa under the sleigh.” Katherine, however, feels that his parenting philosophy is one big mistake—at least, based on her five-year-old twin nieces, who are being raised according to his “Free Child” methods.
She argues with Wynn about his theories, while he argues that her letters are nothing but lies. They disagree about practically everything—and yet, somehow, they don’t really want to stop arguing.
As the days—and nights—move closer to Christmas, Katherine and Wynn both discover that love means accepting your differences. And Christmas is about the things you share….
